%cmake macro usage, dropping -DCMAKE_SKIP_RPATH:BOOL=ON

If you're the maintainer of a cmake-based package, and use the %cmake 
macro, be aware I just implemented a change in rawhide (to 
cmake-2.8.0-2) to drop the usage of
as previously discussed(1).

If you want or need to continue with the old behavior, use
%cmake %{?_cmake_skip_rpath}

NOTE: At the time of writing this, kde4 packages that use the 
%cmake_kde4 macro still use %{_cmake_skip_rpath} by default (at least 
until we can sort out other rpath-related issues in kde4's buildsystem).
